  • Understanding the Availability Features of vSAN Recorded: Nov 30 2016 48 mins
    Jeff Hunter, Staff Technical Marketing Architect at VMware
    Application uptime and resiliency to failure are key factors with any hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) storage solution. Before choosing a platform, it is important to understand its ability to recover from issues such as disk, host, and even entire site failures. This session will focus specifically on the availability features of VMware vSAN. It is a technical discussion that begins with a quick explanation of how vSAN stores virtual machine objects such as configuration (VMX) files and virtual disk (VMDK) files. Next, we will take a look at storage policy-based management (SPBM) as this is the primary method for configuring and managing the levels of resiliency for virtual machine objects. We will examine the differences between and requirements for RAID-1 mirroring and RAID-5/6 erasure coding rules in vSAN storage policies and how these rules affect the number and placement of objects. Next, we will provide technical details around vSAN fault domains and stretched clusters. The session will finish with some notes on vSAN data protection using VMware vSphere Replication and VMware vSphere Data Protection.
  • Essential vSAN Management Recorded: Nov 16 2016 61 mins
    Junchi Zhang, Senior Product Manager, Storage and Availability & Swaroop Malangi, Director Business Intelligence
    vSAN provides clustered storage for virtual machines in a vSphere hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) environment. In this session, we’ll examine one of the main value proposition of vSAN: the ability to be managed simply and efficiently through native integration with vSphere and vCenter. You’ll see how you can manage and monitor vSAN operations using the familiar vCenter tools — helping reduce the number of management tools and accelerating the path to HCI. This session will also look at the flexibility vSAN offers through the included management APIs as well as how advanced tools in the VMware vRealize Suite can be used to gain additional, intelligent operations management of vSAN. New vSAN users or customers who are planning to use vSAN will benefit from the deep dive of the session.
  • Building a Business Case for Hyper-Converged Infrastructure & VMware vSAN Recorded: Nov 9 2016 71 mins
    Anita Kibunguchy, Product Marketing Manager in the Storage and Availability BU
    You are already familiar with VMware vSAN, but you are not sure whether it is the right solution for your environment or whether you can justify its purchase especially an all flash configuration. In this session, we will help you unwind this problem and help you build a business case for Hyper-Converged Infrastructure and vSAN. We’ll introduce you to practical tools like the vSAN Assessment and the TCO Calculator to help you get started with vSAN. Putting it all together you’ll get a very comprehensive understanding of if and where vSAN fits into your datacenter to power Hyper-Converged Infrastructure solutions.
  • VMware vSAN: Enterprise-Grade Storage for Hyper-Converged Infrastructures Recorded: Nov 2 2016 71 mins
    Rawlinson Rivera, Principal Architect Office of CTO - SABU, VMware, Inc
    This session provides detailed insights into the technical facts and value proposition of vSAN as a storage platform for hyper-covered infrastructures (HCI). We will cover the scalable architecture and capabilities of the platform. The webcast also focuses on the new data services such deduplication, compression, erasure coding and QoS, which are aimed at today’s enterprise use cases. We will conclude with a technology roadmap that goes beyond traditional vSphere use cases and will make the case for HCI and vSAN as a platform architecture for Cloud-Native Applications.

  • 3 Approaches to Deploying a Hyper-Converged Solution- Part 2 Recorded: Sep 14 2016 30 mins
    Michael Haag Product Line Manager Storage and Availability VMware and Peter Keilty, VMware
    Although most VMware Virtual SAN design and sizing exercises are straightforward, careful planning at the outset can help you simplify things even more. In Part 1 of this two-part webcast, we covered deployment options for Virtual SAN.

    In Part 2, we’ll start with a brief recap of Part 1 before taking a deeper look into sizing and design considerations for performance vs. capacity-intensive workloads, sizing all-flash and hybrid configurations correctly, and much more.

    Topics include:

    •What to remember when selecting class of drives

    •How to select the right Ready Node for “x” number of VMs
    •Sizing when you don’t yet know workload parameters
    •Choosing between a single large disk group or multiple smaller ones

    •Basic network design considerations to keep in mind


    If you’re uncertain about how to size storage correctly in a Virtual SAN environment, this technical deep dive will help.

  • 5 Myths on Hyper-Converged Infrastructure … Busted! Recorded: Aug 24 2016 19 mins
    Michael Haag Product Line Manager Storage and Availability VMware
    As you begin evaluating hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) options, you may run into conflicting ideas about what it is and what it can do.

    In this webcast, we will debunk some common myths around HCI, discuss what’s behind these misconceptions, and clarify how the right HCI solution leads to a simpler and more efficient way to manage your resources.

    Don’t let myths distract you from what you should be considering when choosing the right HCI, which includes:

    •A proven hypervisor in an integrated HCI stack, with reliability evident in its track record and usage.

    •Broad HCI use cases, that include business-critical apps, VDI, managed hosting platforms, micro-services, and more

    •Reduced costs through the automation of manual tasks with simple, policy-based management, and a broad choice of competitive hardware platforms.

    •Fewer silos by extending existing server and virtualization infrastructures and supporting existing external storage systems
    Join us and learn how the modular architecture of HCI serves as the fundamental building block for growing into a private cloud and full SDDC.
  • 3 Approaches to Deploying a Hyper-Converged Solution- Part 1 Recorded: Aug 10 2016 31 mins
    Michael Haag, VMware and Peter Keilty, VMware
    Although most VMware Virtual SAN design and sizing exercises are straightforward, careful planning at the outset can help you reduce future operations even more. In Part 1 of this two-part webinar, we’ll discuss deployment options for Virtual SAN and the advantages of each.

    We’ll start with a brief introduction to VMware Hyper-Converged Software (HCS), composed of vSphere, vCenter and Virtual SAN, and then discuss how its openness and flexibility allows it to be deployed a variety of ways to meet your specific needs:
    ♣VxRail, a turn-key HCI appliance
    ♣Virtual SAN Ready Nodes, a pre-certified hardware stack ready to run HCS
    ♣Build Your Own, complete flexibility to choose from certified components (any server that can run vSphere can be turned into an HCI solution)

    Understanding key criteria for each will help you reach the same end goal of having an HCI solution with all the ongoing benefits around cost, flexibility, and performance—no matter which option you choose.
  • Traditional Storage vs. HCI: The Storage Admin’s Perspective Recorded: Aug 3 2016 33 mins
    Jase McCarty, Technical Marketing Architect VMware
    Are you a storage admins running business-critical workloads on vSphere? Replacing a traditional storage environment with hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions can give you a simpler, more efficient way to manage resources—and eliminate the guesswork that often leads to overprovisioning.

    Learn what HCI can do to alleviate some pressure. We’ll discuss how VMware Virtual SAN 6.2 powers HCI with a new operational model for shared storage, including features that complement high-end SANS.

    By offloading just one virtualized workload from SAN to Virtual SAN, you can save more expensive SAN or NAS for higher value workloads.

    Topics in the webcast include:

    -The advantages of VM-centric, policy-based storage
    - Avoiding frequent storage requests for transient workloads
    - Simplifying capacity planning by scaling compute and storage in tandem
    - Focusing on optimizing production workloads

    Easy to learn, and with the broadest set of consumption models, see how Virtual SAN hyper-converged storage powers radically simple HCI solutions that solve critical problems for storage admins.
